50 Cent Stars in 'Air Bud' Spoof
While promoting the second season of his Starz’ drama series “Power,” rapper-turned-movie star Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson stopped by a special “Game Night” edition of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Thursday. The G-Unit mogul, who turns 40 next month, spoke about getting older and how it’s affected his music.
“When I approach [the lyrics], I gotta work on it. Sometimes I write things and it’s where I’m at right now,” said 50, joking, “You can’t have maturity in your music.”
Earlier this year, 50 was spotted courtside with Meryl Streep. The unlikely friends met at a Lakers vs. Knicks game at Madison Square Garden. “She has such a strong aura that people are different around her,” said 50, who shared a funny story about Kobe Bryant’s interaction with Streep.
But he was unable to name his favorite Streep movie when Jimmy put him on the spot.
During his late-night visit, he also starred in a mock trailer for an Air Bud sequel called Coach Bud alongside Connie Britton, Paul Giamatti, and a dog named Prince Pumpkin Spice Latte III.
50’s long-awaited album, Street King Immortal, is due this fall, and he can also be seen in the boxing film Southpaw, which opens July 24.
